Workshop: Drawing and The City
Part of Thursday Evening Workshops
Eye to Pencil Studio
Issey Kang will lead a workshop focusing on 'macro and mico looking', taking a psychogeographic exploration of place through drawing.
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONWe will start this workshop by going on a short walk with Issey Kang, focusing on the ‘macro and micro of looking’, using one piece of paper to draw our surroundings, and another to draw objects. Once we are back in the studio, these drawings will be used to create a collaborative scene, with objects populating the drawings of our surroundings, becoming markers of what we saw on our walk.

Issey Kang is an artist based in London, she graduated from Chelsea College of Art last year. “Sculpture is at the forefront of her studio practice with undercurrents of drawing and writing. Using objects from city landscapes both concrete and natural: birds, gates, street lamps and stars form connections between time, seasons and the cosmos.The visual references, metaphors, narratives and emblems which comprise the nexus of my work, echo a world ordered yet unexplainable. Aiming to encompass a range of ideas delineated, but not defined.”What interests her is the myriad of possibilities and occurrences of life-present and past, life’s complexity, diversity and contradiction.
Materials are included.
